Interaction with Guests
Right enough. Sometimes our guests are wandering around all the time, sometimes they stay in and hang out with us.
Our house is in the center of Koper - Capodistria, in the old part, just a minute walk away from the sea. We have a free entry public beach. In the area nearby there is a supermarket, the open market, several bars, restaurants, shops, a free public parking, a bus and a taxi station. The old town is a quiet neighborhood, completely safe for late night arrivals, even if you're heading home at 3 in the morning.
Note that the "free public parking" is in a large lot just beside the old town (2 min walking, right next to the market place and the harbor promenade). Best to park there and just drive to the house to drop off the bags as only residents have permits to park inside town.
The bus and taxi station is 2 min walking away from the house and if you need transport to/from train station or airport let us know.
If you would like to go abroad: 20 min away is Trieste - capital of coffee, 30 min to Lipica's lipizzaner white horses, 45 min Postojna and Skocjan caves, 45 min Pula (Cro) with its Roman arena, 1hr to Ljubljana - capital of Slovenia and 1,5 hours to Venice.
Other Things to Note
PARKING - Note that the "free public parking" is in a large area right next to the market place and near the sea, only 3 minutes from the house. We suggest to drive to the house just to drop off the bags and leave the car in the parking free area. The parking in the old part is limited to residents with permits.
SEASONAL TIPS - The swimming season is from June to September but some tough guys bath also in May and October ;) The access to the town's beach is free and there is a bar, coffee/pastry shop and playhouses for children right on the spot.
There is a lot of cycling to do around the coast or explore the inside of Istra or the Carst and perhaps we can arrange some bikes if you want to.
No parties. No smoking inside. No sleepover without permission. Please be a good neighbor and comply with all local ordinances, state and municipality laws. Please respect the peace and quiet of your neighbors in the apartment/ room and the common areas including the garden specially after 22:00. Apartment's accessories (pillows, blankets, towels...) are not allowed to be taken out of the apartment and do not use the towels provided to clean shoes, floor, tables, etc. If you need additional cleaning material, please ask the staff to provide it. Pets are welcome as long as they are friendly and quiet and cute. Just leave the apartment you rented the way you found it upon arrival.
Friendly host in a great location in town. We did find it a bit loud in the mornings. We enjoyed our time in Slovenia
We stayed two nights in Bostjan s appartment which is located near to the city and the sea! Our room was small but clean. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the privacy was respected. Bostjan organized that we could check in earlier, thanks for that! Good place for a short stay in Koper!
We had a really nice time in Koper. Bostjan and his wife were really friendly and the appartment was nice and close to the seaside. Thanl you very much.
We stayed a single night at Botswana place. Unfortunately we never got the chance to meet him. Further more we got a bigger room than the one we booked (very nice) due to availability, making it a little hard to actually review the room we booked. The room we stayed in however was splendid and so was the rest of the facilities of the house. The location is also excellent. If going to Koper again, we would definitely consider staying here again.
Bostjan und Sara sind wunderbare Gastgeber, bei denen ich mich schnell wohlgefühlt habe. Ihre Wohnung ist gemütlich eingerichtet und mein Zimmer bietete ausreichend Platz. Sie gaben mir ein paar nützliche Tipps und brachten mich am Abreisetag spontan noch zum Bahnhof. Jederzeit gerne wieder.
Bostjan and his girlfriend are lovely persons, very polite. Nice to stay in this place, the hosts is very kind. The house is much like it was written in the announcement, is in the center of Koper! I recommend this place, I hope to see them again in the future!
